Hubby used to drink only black tea, and even then it was loaded with sugar and milk. And sugar.
He got adventurous and started drinking puerh, greens, and oolongs – PLAIN! The past two weekends he has asked me after breakfast if I am making tea. When I ask what he wants, he says, “I don’t know. Nothing weird. Maybe something green.”

Today’s nothing weird something green was Premium Silky Green from Bird Pick, which we are pretty sure is a green oolong. It is so buttery and good.

On a side note, and only the forty and over crowd will probably know the answer: there was a comedian/magician who was on TV in maybe the 70’s. He sort of hummed this little song as he did a trick where he hit his hands together and he was holding up several fingers on one hand and they would magically “transfer” to the other hand. I think it was on Johnny Carson. I have googled and youTubed exhaustively and can’t find the guy. Does anyone remember who it was? I did find someone doing the same thing, but it was a much newer video.

I wonder if he was the same guy my mom called “The Banana Man;” this predates my conscious memory, but I remember her talking about a funny humming tweedle-dee guy who did Ed Sullivan.

No, not so far back as that! This would have been maybe in the mid 70’s. I don’t remember the banana man, but I looked it up on google and that isn’t him. And it wasn’t quite humming…it was a silly Da Da Da DAH duh DA DA DAH DAH, Da Da Da Da Da Da Da DAH DAH

This is the song and the act, but not the same guy! The guy I am thinking of was…well, he looked a little like a pot head! LOL!

Can’t pull it out of my head. I remember him from the Mike Douglas show but can put a name with the face.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
